Take on your next mission in style and luxury
HITMAN series developer Io-Interactive has confirmed that the fourth episode of HITMAN, Bangkok, will be releasing on August the 16th.
The upcoming episode features the “Club 27” mission, where players will find themselves operating from within a high-class luxury hotel and resort located on the Chao Phyraya River right on the outskirts of Bangkok. The targets this time around are Jordan Cross, up-and-coming rock star and front man of his on-the-rise Indie band The Class, and Cross’ family lawyer, a man named Ken Morgan. Both of these high-priority targets reside within the hotel at which you are stationed as The Class finishes its much-anticipated second album.
Players can expect Bangkok to come with a completely fresh new look and sound, as explained by Io-Interactive Studio Head Hannes Seifert. “Bangkok is the exotic setting for the next episode in our HITMAN season, “Seifert said. “We’ve gone a bit rock and roll with this one as your targets are the lead singer of the band The Class and his family lawyer – so expect musical instruments to be used for some unusual activity.”
Aesthetics aside, the newest HITMAN episode to come loaded with content. Throughout their visit to this classy Bangkok establishment, players can expect to find new disguises, plus new gear, weapons, and items that can be unlocked through completing over 65 unique challenges.
HITMAN: Bangkok is the fourth episode of the latest entry in developer IO Interactive’s assassination simulation series, and follows Prologue, as well as the previous chapters Paris, Sapienza, and Marrakesh. The following episode will take place in the United States and the season finale in Japan, both of which are slated for release sometime this year. HITMAN is currently available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC. Stay tuned for more information on upcoming HITMAN chapters as it is released!
